Profile Great 80s metal/hard rock band from Lille, France formed in 1983. This is a compilation released between 1983 and 1985. This album was recorded at Davout Studiosand  produced by Franck “ya right” De Holthausen for Marcus Productions.

This French metal act released a single, demo and EP before calling it a day. Power Record’s collected the single and EP and along with two live cuts gave us “Highland Queen 1983-1985”. The live material includes a cover of “Live Wire” by Mötley Crüe. That is a good reference point as Highland Queen sound a little like early Mötley Crüe mixed with lighter Judas Priest. Nothing fancy mind you just no-frills early eighties heavy metal.
